    Size matters. How many weight classes does he need to skip?

    I like Crawford but its hard to tell just yet. He has a lot of potential. After Felix Diaz if he's successful I would like to see him have one more fight at 140 against Julius Indongo to unify the division and then he should move up to 147. So many names up there for him and if he has the same success at that weight than there is no argument about him being number 1.

    You think he's done going up in weight? You don't think he's going to want some of those big names at 147?

    I think he's a greater talent than Spence considering he's moved up from 135 and I think he might surprise people at 147

    Maybe. Its not that I think he's a bad fighter, more that there's nothing that really stands out about him to me.

    Him being ambidextrous stands out a little

    He's a really good fighter, but better than Lomachenko? I don't think so. Postol is a big win, and he's got a couple good ones over Burns and Gamboa etc. I just don't see that special something you see with Loma and guys like Roy Jones coming up. I honestly think he'd have his hands full at 147... I'd take him over Garcia and Khan, think he's 50/50 with Porter and Thurman and think Spence and Brook beat him.

    Eventually. There's no need to rush. Maybe Pacman but he's better off waiting to fight the big WW's.
